NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS-The A Cappella Choir, the premier vocal ensemble at Stephen F. Austin State University, will present its spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 8, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.
Under the baton of Tim King, director of choral activities at SFA, the choir will perform the program it presented while on tour to high schools primarily in the northwest Houston area. Between Sunday, Feb. 21, and Wednesday, Feb 24, the ensemble performed 12 concerts, including evening programs at Blinn College in Brenham and St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston.
Highlights of the program include Kenneth Leightons' "What Love is this of Thine" and a choral arrangement of Percy Grainger's "I'm Seventeen Come Sunday." The choir will also present "i thank you God," a new piece by Eric Whitacre that is based on the well known e.e. cummings poem of the same title.
